to get across today? >> well, first and foremost, the conversation that the first lady michelle obama had with america about her values and the president's values and really about family values was one of the most incredible conversations i've heard in a long, long period of time. president bill clinton just really, beyond anything we've heard in recent times from the president. then president obama later on tonight. my main goal is to talk about the president's record, president obama, the many things he's still, in my opinion, not received proper credit for and that the public still needs to know while talking about, again, the real record or lack thereof of mitt romney and the things that he's talked about but has no plans to do anything about. so that's my goal for this evening. it's a great honor to be a part of this. then sit back and relax and listen to our president, who we're going to work hard to get re-elected. >> you mentioned the credit you believe the president receives. in some of the states that are recovering that have a lower unemployment rate than the national average,
